Au Balcon de Verchaix is everything your would expect of a French chalet and more. The hosts Philippe and Armelle could not do more to make our experience a good one. Armelle had our ski bus tickets ready after a very filling continental break. We had dinner included in our package and was fantastic each night. The food was local... More

My two children and I stayed in one of Au Balcon de Verchaix's family rooms. Our room was spacious, spotless and nicely decorated; we immediately felt at home and comfortable. Armelle & Phillipe were excellent hosts who put us at ease and helped with my halting French so that most of our questions and needs were understood! We felt looked... More

My family and partners (7 of us) stayed here for four nights last week and we were all so impressed. The Chalet itself is gorgeous - beautifully decorated with rooms that are a good size and all have an en suite. There is a lounge area upstairs for relaxing in the evening and a sauna on the lower ground floor.... More

We had an absolutely fabulous time staying at Au Balcon de Verchaix. Chalet is first class and a great location. Armelle and Philippe were superb hosts. It surpassed all our expectations. The chalet was so lovely and cosy. Warm and welcoming, with tones of little extra touches, which would certainly encourage us to return. Upstairs are all the bedrooms which... More

A very friendly welcome to a superb chalet with fantastic views over the valley. Our room was spacious & spotlessly clean as was the whole chalet. Armelle & Philippe are excellent hosts - we will return!

Excellent hosts, a spacious and very well managed chalet in a beatiful position, a large room suitable for a small family and a very competitive price for a short break at half term. Philippe and Armelle were incredibly helpful and gracious hosts. Highly recommended.

Philippe and Arnelle make excellent hosts. The food was exceptionally good. The chalet was relatively newly built, beautifully decorated in traditional Savoyard style with great attention to detail. It was very comfortable and always lovely and warm. We spent 4 nights there in February. Our bedroom had the most wonderful view over the valley. The atmosphere was friendly and we... More

We stayed for one night and were really impressed with the quality of the accommodation. Armelle and Phillip were so incredibly helpful and friendly - Phillip made a huge effort digging our car out of the snow and the breakfast by the wood burning stove was exceptional. Overall the stay was so much better value for money than staying in... More

We stayed for 3 nights in January, on a bed & breakfast basis. Our hosts were very friendly, spoke better much English than we did French, and made us feel at home in their beautiful chalet. There is a spectacular view across the valley to the mountains beyond and the quiet location is very convenient for Samoens and Morillon.
